"Farewell" - Col. Vladimir Vetrov
Col. Vladimir Vetrov was a KGB officer working at KGB headquarters. His job
was to evaluate the intelligence collected by Directorate T.
Between spring 1981 and fall 1982 he supplied the French DST over 4,000 secret
documents and revealed the names of more than 200 Line X officers stationed in
10 KGB posts in the West.
Col. Vetrov supplied a list of Soviet organizations in scientific collection and
summary reports from Directorate T on the goals, achievements, and unfilled
objectives of the program.
He was executed in 1983 for killing a Soviet policeman.
Col. Vetrov's contribution led to the collapse of a crucial Soviet collection
program at the time when the Soviet military needed it.
